Mediterranean Day: the best practices made in Italy for the defense of the sea

Start date: 11/28/2022
End date: 11/28/2022

The meeting will be an opportunity for debate between institutions, the third sector, and the world of research and business to put in place concrete actions for the defence of the sea. Best practices of green & blue economy made in Italy that offer positive prospects for achieving the UN 2030 Agenda Goals will be presented.

Among the initiatives presented and to be discussed, will be included:
– An offshore wind project in the Sicilian channel respectful of the sea and supported by a feasibility and impact study carried out by the A. Dohrn Zoological Station and Foundation of Naples;
– A desalinator ship that recovers metals and minerals before pouring the cleaned brine into the sea, during navigation, unlike the old stationary plants that destroy the seabed with the discharge concentrated in a single point;
– Systems for the collection of plastics along Italian rivers by means of floating barriers and innovative systems for the collection of plastics in the sea;
– Innovative container transport systems in the Mediterranean and projects for the production of sustainable renewable energy.
